National Speed Awareness Course (NSAC)
To attend this course you must have received a letter from the police.
Drivers that attend this course significantly reduce their chances of being involved in a crash and of being caught for the same offence in the next 2 to 3 years.
The course lasts 4 hours, and includes tea and coffee at registration, and a further break will be provided. It takes place in a classroom type setting.
You can attend only one National Speed Awareness course in 3 years. Any further offending will be dealt with by prosecution.
The course trainers have professional driver training backgrounds and follow national guidelines. The police do not participate in the course.
You can take the course in other areas in the UK, just search the police DORS website to attend a course outside of Kent.
